Would not recommend Oxford, but unfortunately they own so much of Ann Arbor
I live in a basement apartment and I pay over $1000/month. The rent has gone up about $50 per month since I moved in about 2.5 years ago, with out improving anything in the apartment. Parking is outrageously expensive, $900/year. Although the doors to the building are "locked," packages are constantly being stolen. The property managers genuinely don't seem to care about the residents. I've had problems since moving in, but it is so close/convenient to the law school. There are 2 washers and 2 dryers in the basement that are always broken, so I have resorted to going to a laundromat since my second year living there. Location is ok, it's right by a bunch of frat houses and can get very loud/crazy during football season.
Great 1 bed super close to Ross
Great one bedroom with walk in closet and attached bathroom, and granite countertops. Not to mention a 2 min walk to Ross!
Good Apartment but "Meh" Building
I live in a 1 bed, 1 bath apartment near Packard and State. It's about a 3-5 minute walk to Ross and about a 10-15 minute walk downtown, so it's very easy to get places. While it is close to the undergrads/frats, noise isn't an issue.
Overall, the apartment has been good. It's between 700-800 sq feet, which is more than enough space for one person, and given that the rent is less than 1k, it is a good value. The apartment is two levels: the kitchen and main room are on the first level and the bedroom and bathroom are on the second level. Kind of weird, but it works.
There are a mix of grad students/MBAs and undergraduates who live in the building.
The biggest downsides are that the kitchen is very small and the building is old so the exterior hallway has an interesting odor (but that doesn't carry through to my apartment). Oxford isn't the most responsive or organized management company, but the maintenance crew is terrific - super responsive and very friendly.
Good location but not so good management
Apartment is 6 mins away walking distance. There are also few food options available, close to IM building, and a bus stop. However, Oxford company is not-so accomodating and rent will increase every year. Maintenance is very responsive and good but the washer/dryer breaks all the time. Giving it a good rate only because of convenience.
Furnished apartment close to Ross
Furnished apartment close to Ross. Cheap and convenient option.
Convenient location no frills
5 min walk to class, can't beat that. Can be pre furnished or not based on request. Reasonably quiet. Decent in unit features, big kitchen. Downside is only 1 washer dryer for building and bad in unit AC. It's certainly more undergrads here too. Happy to live here and would still recommend despite downsides.
Close to campus
It's only a 6-7 minute walk from Ross and the apartment is decent. Rooms can be furnished or unfurnished for the same price, so it was easy when I moved from out of state.
Value for money
Based on the proximity to Ross, I feel it offers a no-frills experience. The place comes furnished with bar stools, couches and a twin bed and closet
It's been a good experience so far, as the units in this building are fully furnished and make it an easy moving experience.
Affordable, modern unit very close to campus!
I've been pleased with my apartment so far. I have a dish washer, on site laundry, garbage disposal, air conditioning, and a large kitchen with plenty of counter space. My 9/10 rating is based on Michigan standards, not big city standards. I feel this place is the best value and location for the money! In-unit laundry would make it 10/10.
Great Location at an Affordable Price
More like dorm living but the price and location cannot be beat.
This place is a solid deal for the location. It's a 5 minute walk to Ross and only about 15 min to downtown. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Apartment is moderately updated but nothing fancy. Management is very responsive on maintenance requests. Service is usually performed same day. We even got a new oven within one day after ours stopped working. Rent also includes one free parking space, which is rare for Ann Arbor.
Great Location, rundown building, responsive maintenance
Oxford manages several properties but doesn't have adequate manpower in their office. Getting anything administrative done takes a long time and several follow-up calls. However, the location to Ross is very good, even though the inside of the building is quite run down. I live in a 4 bdrm/2 bath with roommates. Two people share one bathroom. The kitchen is small, and the fridge is definitely too small. They could have placed a larger one in the space. There is no A/C on the first floor (which is a problem in the months of Aug-Sept (maybe Oct) but there are individual units upstairs in the 3 bedrooms. There is heat throughout, but it's electric. It comes with 1 parking spot, so 1 roommate pays more for a slightly larger room and parking spot. We have had several maintenance issues, but that staff is very responsive.
Very Close to Ross
4-minute walk to Ross, convenient location, responsive management, have had no issues.
Affordable, basic, close to business school
Pros: In comparison with other properties it's affordable (comes to about $813 per person in 2016-17 year plus additional $50-100 for internet and electricity). It's extremely close to the business school (only a 5 minute walk) which is great for winter. Furnished and building is in decent condition.
Cons: Can be quite loud on weekends and evenings since there are undergrads and frat houses surrounding. Only two washers and dryers for the entire building and they are frequently broken. Hallway often smells like pot and there seems to be no insulation so the units get quite cold in the winter unless you are willing to pay to blast the heat.
Overall: Good for students who are budget-conscious and want to be near law school/business school, and are willing to put up with noise and some inconvenience.
